Technically,
release a=<foo>
matches any package where its repository's Release file has:
Suite: <foo>

It's just that the Release files in the official repositories use the 
stable/testing/unstable instead of Lenny/Squeeze/Sid monikers.

Over @ backports.org, they use lines like:
Suite: lenny-backports
in their Release files, so it is different.

The apt_preferences manpage still refers to an 'Archive:' line which isn't 
in the current release files.  It also doesn't mention any way to match the 
'Codename:' line.
